This was a good starting place. I substituted ground chicken (sorry Jeanie), used sesame oil with a couple of shakes of cayenne for cooking the chicken and added a dollop of oyster sauce when adding the pepper. Garnished with matchstick carrots. Very good. Read More

This recipe is delicious, the whole family loves it, even my picky 3 year old. I felt there was something missing though and added some oyster sauce. It also could do with a little heat, since I'm cooking it for my kids I just put hot sauce on my own, but it would be delicious with jalapeño. Read More

I revised this recipe by adding 2 TBSP sesame oil, 1 TBSP rice vinegar, and 1 TBSP siracha sauce (siracha sauce towards the end of cooking). Also only had ground ginger. Paired with green beans sautéed in the same sauce of garlic, sesame oil, rice vinegar and ground ginger. Read More
